Hey pallies! Welcome to the Dino Lounge. I wanted to do a blog devoted to Dean Martin, the King of Cool himself, and his pallies in the Rat Pack. They are the coolest cats of all time. These dudes oozed more cool than any of us mere mortals could ever dream of. What was cool 45 years ago is still cool today. You know why? Coolness is timeless. It never goes out of style. I thought to start off my blog that I would share one of my favorite Dino tunes with you guys. It's Dino singing Welcome To My World. This video clip comes from The Dean Martin Variety Show, which was Dino's very popular variety show that ruled Thursday nights for almost a decade. There's not a more perfect song to launch my new blog with. Welcome to Dino's world. Just imagine what a cool and hip world that would truly be. I plan to post a variety of entries concerning Dino and the rest of the Rat Pack. I want this blog to reflect how these guys enjoyed the pleasures of life and lived life to the ultimate fullest possible. I hope you will dig what I do here, becoming faithful and loyal readers in the process. Please always feel free to leave me comments on my various postings. I really look forward to reading what you have to say. Thanks so much. Cheers!
